levitating like it’s 1920

peculiar me in 1920


I came across this book in the bookstore earlier in the week — a peculiar levitating child on the cover! I would have loved to read it when I was in my preteen years. I was really into haunted stories and such. But I’ve gotten more and more wimpy as I age, and I shy away from books like this lest it gives me nightmares. But it gave me an idea for a levitation photo, as we were going to a Gatsby-themed garden party this weekend at the Spadina Museum, and I thought it might be funny taking a similarly peculiar photo at a historic garden dressed in costume :D

Here’s a more cheerful version. The roses are gorgeous!

Cheerful guest appearance by Mike :D (he never thinks what I do is too silly for him to join in. Isn’t he the most awesome?)

We were looking forward to this ever since we heard about it weeks ago and were excitedly preparing our costumes :D Mike bought suspenders and a bow tie, and I bought a dress from the thrift store and made a hat from this pattern. I really liked the flower pattern on the crown.

 People come with such beautiful costumes!

There was a live band (note the musician playing the washboard! :D)

I loved the beautiful plants inside and outside the house.

We had the most excellent time (and lots of pink lemonade) :D

Hope you have an awesome week!
